As a business owner, you’re well-versed in the art of options. You have options when it comes to your payroll system, your lobby furniture, and even the snacks in the break room. Did you know you also have options for your commercial garage door system? Check them out for yourself!

Sectional Doors

Sectional doors make up one of the main categories of commercial garage doors. As you might have guessed, sectional refers to the style of the door; they’re made of sections. Sectional doors look very similar to residential garage doors; they’re just obviously much larger. They’re probably what comes to mind when you think of a typical garage door. There are two primary materials to choose from when it comes to commercial sectional doors: steel and aluminum.


Steel sectional garage doors are known for their durability. Steel sectional doors are usually energy-efficient and very low maintenance. In comparison to aluminum, steel is typically more durable, but this isn’t always the case. Steel sectional doors work well in a number of different settings, and they come in a variety of styles and price points to meet your specific needs.


Aluminum sectional doors are sectional doors with either aluminum panels or aluminum framing with glass panes. Aluminum is corrosion-resistant and fairly low maintenance. Its versatility makes it a helpful option in a number of different commercial settings. Aluminum sectional doors with full-view glass panes work extremely well for auto dealerships, car washes, and mechanic bays.

High-Speed Doors

For those in a manufacturing or shipping setting, high-speed doors are an excellent option. Patent-pending models from Wayne Dalton offer durable, high-speed doors for both indoor and outdoor applications. Their spring-less design requires very little interruption for maintenance, which means your operation can continue, business as usual.

Rolling Garage Doors

Unlike traditional sectional doors, rolling doors open by rolling up into a spool, rather than up onto tracks. Rolling doors are typically thinner than sectional doors, and their self-containing mechanics offer durability in small spaces.
